injured and chandra was taken to an area hospital as well, chp investigators tell us they believe he was intoxicated at the time. >> drugs and alcohol are suspected to be involved. it is again really too early to see any other information but we are investigating that as being involved. >> comings up in the next half- hour we will tell you about now efforts underway to combat that here. now live in sonoma county, christien kafton, ktvu channel 2 news. >> police are looking for the suspects involved in a carjacking, police say last night the suspects forced their way into a woman's car and made her drive to an atm and take out money, then she was dropped off. she was driving a 1999 ford

roll out of the website, in her prepared remarks to the hearing she blames the contractors hired to build the website. at a hearing last week the contractors blamed the government. many republicans blame her and want her to resign. >> expecting this secretary to be able to fix what she hasn't been able to fix during the last three and a half years is unrealistic, it is throwing good money after bad. it is time for her to resign, someone else to take char. >> now later today president obama travels to boston where he will call for patience with the roll out of the affordable care act. he will talk about the difficulties massachusetts had when it launched its own insurance reform that is now popular. the face of the website has changed. namely it doesn't feature the face of the smiling woman anymore. she was taken off the website over the weekend and replaced with icons of the 4 ways people can sign up. the shot of the smiling woman came from a stock photo library, there are rots it was
removed when people started trying to find out who she is. >> there is a new twist in the case of a patient found dead in a locked stairwell at fran sphran general hospital. the body of lib spaulding was found earlier this month, nearly three weeks after she disappeared from her room. now police say they can't find the man who reported seeing her body several days before it was found. that man was apparently wearing a hospital badge, he informed a supervisor who contacted hospital security, but it took four more days for spalding's body to be recovered, the man they are looking for is described as asian, 5'8" with a medium build between 30 and 40, he was wearing a blue dress shirt hospital identification and possibly a tie. time now 4:36, campbell police hoping video will help catch 4 suspects in a nightclub shooting. it shows the suspects walking

of andy lopez. hundreds attended his funeral last night. the 13-year-old was shot to death by a sheriff's deputy last week while holding a bb gun that resembled a weapon, leaders say the killing has led to growing tension between officers and the community. >> that is part of the discussion we are going to have, what can we create, what dialogue can we create to ensure we have that, because it doesn't exist right now. >> last night's funeral followed another day of protest in santa rosa. >> earlier in the day 1000 people marched to the sonoma county sheriff's office to protest the shooting. deputies stood guard behind barricades and on the roof of sheriff's headquarters. the laly started at noon and only seemed to grow as the day went on but police say the huge crowd remained peaceful during the demonstration. this shooting has now become a national news story.
it is raising the debate on when officers should use deadly force, coming up find out what is making the tough decision even more difficult. >> in a story you will see only here, ktvu has found more than a million people drive through bay area tollbooths every year without paying a cent. one of the most common ways to cheat the system is to use temporary cardboard plates, these blank dealer plates are stolen from newly purchased cars and cannot be traced, every month an average of 100,000 cars cross bridges with no license plates and that is millions of dollars in lost revenue. >> when a plate for whatever reason can't be read and in this case because the plate is not there, we peg those losses at about 4 million dollars a year. >> the transportation commission is pushing for a change in state law that would require all cars to have license plates before they
leave the lot. now the proposal under consideration would require them to do that that would be entered into the dmv data base. they will hold a hearing following the accident that killed them. they were working on the tracks when they were hit and killed by a bart train. now lawmakers say a policy that makes track workers responsible for their own safety may have contributed to that accident. the bart discontinued that policy shortly after the deaths 10 days ago, a committee now plans to hold a hearing on november 7th in san francisco. >> 4:40, this morning the cardinals hope it is not a bad omen, while they finally landed in boston, they spent section hours last night on the tarmac of the st. louis airport, this plane was ground due to mechanical problems.
